white stripes | oil on canvas | 2010
i was in an artsy sort of mood today. possibly because i was feeling creative after a night of SUPERBLY creative and delicious food at volt last night. good food for the tummy = good food for the brain = good food for the soul, yes? i was super in the mood to paint, but i have no studio of my own. and im a messy painter. and i love painting on a larrrrge scale. so i opted for ink and sketchbook-sized paper and watered down acrylic paints. i think i'm going to have to start driving out to college park.. maybe once a week or something. so i can paint what's in my head.
anyways, these paintings by duma are so freakin gorgeous. i love the simplicity. and the pop of color! the girl above has my bob haircut~ hahaa! i guess what's so fascinating about her work is that she manages to evoke emotion in her portraits without the eyes of the subject. i'm all about awkward and unexpected compositions.
